This IBMS-accredited program is ideal for those wanting to develop advanced knowledge and skills in Biomedical Science.
Why study this course with us?
Biomedical Scientists are in demand in the healthcare service (NHS pathology labs, National Blood and Transplant Service), medical research, pharmaceutical industry, and organizations such as the UK Health Security Agency and the Medical Research Council.
You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidence-based practice. We aim to develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature effectively.
The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of a research article written in the style of publishable scientific work and a short oral presentation. Options could include data or laboratory-based projects, depending on research interests.
